Over the centuries, Christians have found several ways to let God do his work in our lives. God does not force us to love him—love by definition has to be willingly given; it cannot be programmed into us or forced out of us. We have to choose it. God works in us as we submit to him. “It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose” (Philippians 2:13).
How to act like Jesus?
God sent His only son, Jesus to set us a n example on how human should leave according to the will of God. The Bible confirms that we are perfectly made according to the image and likeness of God, therefore, we are capable of becoming a holy person. The sad thing about being holy these days, it is being ridiculed. We almost believe that holiness is impossible to attain, when in fact, its simple to be one. Again, God designed life to be simple, if only we fully commit ourselves to His will. So the question goes, how do we really become like Jesus?
The act of worship is not a requirement, it’s a privilege to have personal moment with God. It’s not just about singing and dancing, but it’s about receiving God’s anointing and divine message. We must not forget God’s greatness, his mercy and his desire to do good in our lives. We must not forget that we can trust him and that we depend on him, just as Jesus did.
Communication is an important element of of a relationship, and through prayer, we talk with God as a Father, Friend, and a Savior. We acknowledge that we depend on God. And we ask him for the help we need—needs such as food, intervention, and spiritual change. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6).
“Jesus in Me”
Listen to this amazing song from Christian country music artist Clifton Jansky. In this original song from his 2002 release, Get Off the Fence, Clifton sings about being a good person so that people are able to see Jesus in everything you do. Perhaps you know of someone who’d like to hear about this article. If so, we are more than gratified to have you as an instrument of spreading these words of encouragement to our brothers and sisters who needs them the most. God bless you.
